3. Billie Joe Armstrong

Billie Joe Armstrong (born February 17, 1972) is an American
musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead
vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the pop punk rock band
Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt. He is also a

and The Network.
Raised in Rodeo, California, Armstrong developed an interest in
music at a young age, and recorded his first song at the age of five.
He met Mike Dirnt while attending elementary school, and the two
instantly bonded over their mutual interest in music, forming the
band Sweet Children when the two were 15 years old. The band
changed its name to Green Day, and would later achieve massive
commercial success. Armstrong has also pursued musical projects
outside of Green Day's work, including numerous collaborations with

Frank Edwin Wright III (born December 9, 1972), known professionally as Tré Cool, is
a German-born American drummer, best known as the drummer for the American
punk rock/pop punk band Green Day. He replaced the band's former drummer John
Kiffmeyer in 1990. Cool has also played in The Lookouts, Samiam and the Green Day
side-projects The Network and the Foxboro Hot Tubs.
Frank Edwin Wright III was born in Frankfurt, West Germany, to American parents
Frank Edwin Wright II and Linda Wright. He lived in Willits, California with his father
and his elder sister Lori. He has German heritage, and his father was a helicopter pilot
during the Vietnam War. Wright's closest neighbor was Larry Livermore, who at the
time was the singer of the punk band The Lookouts. When Wright was 12, Livermore
recruited him as the drummer of The Lookouts. And Tre took on the name of "Tré
Cool", using both the French word "très" (meaning "very") and the English word
"cool" as a way of saying he was "very cool". Trey, a play on Wright's family's
generational titles, had already been Wright's nickname prior to the addition of "Cool."
When Green Day's drummer, John Kiffmeyer, left the band, the group recruited Tré
Cool to be their drummer. In his second year, Tré Cool dropped out of high school
and opted to earn a GED. He began taking classes at a local community college but
would again drop out as the band became a more time consuming priority. During
this time the band considered breaking up because it took a long time to adjust to
playing with Tré Cool.

7. Michael Ryan Pritchard

Michael Ryan Pritchard (born May 4, 1972), known professionally as Mike Dirnt, is an American
musician best known for being the co-founder, bassist, backing and occasional lead vocalist of the
American punk rock band Green Day. He has also played in several other bands, including The
Frustrators. His stage name was originally a nickname from his friends at grade school, as he
would constantly play "air bass" and make a "dirnt, dirnt, dirnt" noise while pretending to pluck
the strings.
While at Pinole Valley High School, Dirnt, Armstrong, and classmate Sean Hughes formed a band
called Sweet Children.Dirnt's mother struggled to provide for him and his sister as a single parent,
and eventually had to leave Rodeo in 1987 to look for work. Unwilling to leave Sweet Children,
Armstrong and Dirnt convinced each other's parents to allow Dirnt to move into Armstrong's
garage. After drummer John Kiffmeyer, who was also known as Al Sobrante, joined the group,
Sweet Children began performing at 924 Gilman Street. The band performed several wellreceived sets, which encouraged Armstrong to drop out of high school to focus his energy on
music. Dirnt, however, worried that he needed a backup plan and continued his studies. Hughes,
who was not as dedicated to the group as the other members, left Sweet Children, leaving Dirnt
to play bass. Dirnt often brought his bass to school, and the plucking noise of the unamplified
strings led classmates to jokingly call him by the onomatopoeia "Dirnt". After changing its name
to Green Day, the band recorded its debut album 39/Smooth over the 1989 Christmas holiday
break and went on its first van tour in June 1990, leaving the day that Dirnt graduated from high
